Does CPO Elite have more coverage than traditional CPO? Or CPO Elite is better than the traditional one mainly due to the mileage cap at 15k miles?

Board sponsors did mention there is still $2k incentives on MY14 328i, so including the drive event credit, a brand new MY14 can be a better deal than a MY14 loaner with 5k miles, right?

Tirerack does have OEM 2015 435i GC info, they look like the usual suspects from the F30 offerings(as others stated).

Thanks for the clarification. If that is the case, the GAP should still kick it after transportation company insurance pays, correct?

It depends if OP's auto insurance has new car replacement coverage, some covers 110% of insured car's MSRP, so the fees and tax should be covered too.

If it is not iced up the defrost button plus AC(to remove humidity) usually works well. Leaving the window open while driving also equalizes the temperature difference quickly.

It is interesting that no automaker uses any form of FSDs, it does look like a cost-effective alternative to proprietary solutions for the automakers(or is it?).

The 320i 8AT does sound quieter than the 328i 8AT, even with identical gearing. I do wonder if 320i 8AT is programming differently vs. 328i, e.g., maybe 320i shifts at lower rpm for fuel efficiency?...
